    Bulleit is great. They also make a GOOD tasting Rye that’s real cheap.

    Nothing will beat a good glass of bourbon.

    You should try the Woodford Reserve Double Oaked. It is nice and smooth. Goes down easy after a GT win. I hope to go through two bottles next season.

    Yuck! If you're going to go Irish, go with something good, not swill. Redbreast 15 or Yellow Spot.

    My family comes from the potato-farming Irish. That’s above our class.

    So does mine (Foxford, Mayo), but that doesn't mean we can't raise ourselves up!! I personally favor bourbon and rye, then unpeated single malts, then Irish...and then way at the end, Islays (which I cannot stomach) not named Bunnahabhain. I wonder which flavor Mr. Washington will grow up to enjoy while watching his alma mater, in old gold and white, stomp on their in-state rival for years to come.

    Would be curious what anyone thinks of the Georgia Bourbon out of Moon Rise Distillary. It is relatively new but has already won 3 gold medals in national competition beating Woodford and several other "names." I think Bourbon is an individual taste thing but I was blown away after tasting it a few weeks ago.

    Off topic I know. I have a bottle of the rye and have had the bourbon at local places in Clayton. It’s good stuff and distilller is former Tech chemistry professor.

    Not sure who your question is for but the Clayton Georgia stuff runs around $40.

    When they won their last gold medal the judges told the distiller that he should double the price and enter it in a more elite category.

    I am not a Bourbon or Rye expert but his flavors suit my palate.

    Thanks Stinger, Im gonna order 2 bottles, one for me and one for my F-I-L.

    This could turn into one of the most under rated threads on this forum.

    Now I'm nervous. If you don't like it I will feel bad. :) Well, worse if you disappoint your FIL.
